An 11-year-old boy was shot in the arm at the Spanish Jon Apartments at 8:10 p.m. on Friday, according to a Little Rock police report. It was the second shooting reported at the complex at 5001 W. 65th St. in less than a week.
Officers found the child on the east side of Building D with a bullet wound in his left triceps. The boy, who was treated and released from Arkansas Children's Hospital, told police he was shot by a stranger. Officers collected several spent shell casings on the building's west side, the report said.
The shooting came four days after police reported a 20-year-old Little Rock man, Brytron Sawyer, was shot three times at the apartment complex.
